Thanks!
I really appreciate your making TWRP possible for our ATT SGIII - I couldn't find my Internal SD Card at first - but with a little digging I finally found it - anyway -

I have a question - I have several backups that I had originally made with CWM - what are my options for trying to use them in the fuure?
Do I have to flash back to CWM in order to use Nandroids that I created when I was using CWM Recovery? Is there a way I can create a flashable zip or at least maybe a TAR file? I have never done either and am not sure what steps I would need to take ??

Any help is appreciated

Thanks guys for supporting our phone!

stock rooted and rocking kt747 kernel...still got my imei

I'm on Tmo, but I'm checking out your twrp thread because this has been my theory on how to avoid the imei issue. I've only flashed a rom twice & restored two nandroid backups, but thus far I've had no issues with it. My thread on imei loss has been moved to Att general section, so it will be interesting to see if we get any reports of imei issue with twrp now that it's becoming more popular for our devices. Personally its one of my favorite recoveries. I discovered it on my Transformer Prime and have loved using it ever since. It's just more graphical & user friendly then cwm in my opinion. I really like ext4 recovery that I use on an HTC Sensation. Cwm is difficult for me to read and there are so many versions available that aren't fully optimized for every device, and that worries me that it may be a cause in the imei issue.

Instructions for manual installation!
Thanks for this! TWRP is my favourite.

This is how I installed it...
  1. Download with Goo Manager. (Download OpenRecovery Script)
    If you couldn't get it downloaded, I upped it here and here.
  2. Reboot into recovery once it says it's done, to see if it works.
    For me, it didn't, so I installed recovery manually.
  3. To do this, find the file that Goo Manager downloaded (in Goo: settings > download path), and move it where you like, for these instructions it will be moved to "/sdcard" and renamed to "recovery.img"
  4. (you will need a terminal emulator for these final steps)
  5. In the terminal, type "su" and press enter.
  6. Grant superuser access if asked.
  7. Then, type "dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18"
  8. Make sure that you typed that right before pressing enter.
    Press enter.
  9. To see if it worked, reboot into recovery!
  10. Enjoy your new recovery!
    The command was from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1739426

It's there a way to have both cwm and twrp recoveries on the phone and be able to switch between them?

Only thing I can think of would be to like, have both images on the SD card and whenever you want to switch push them via terminal. I don't know for sure. Just an idea.
